The League also sponsors the annual Special Needs Christmas Party. We serve lunch, Burnet County Courthouse employees provide cookies, Santa Clause comes, we dance and dance and dance … and a good time is had by our friends in the mental health community, their caretakers, and us – who have been named “the ladies in red!” by our guests.
This year the Highland Lakes Service League is proud to announce we will continue our holiday tradition this year – Only with a 2020 Twist!
COVID Safe Special Needs Christmas Event
on Friday, December 4th, at the First United Methodist Church
The parking lot will be decorated with fun, and exciting Christmas blow-ups, Gingerbread men, reindeer & sleigh, and of course, Santa will be there too! KBEY Radio, and their own Ben Shields, will provide holiday music, as the buses and vans arrive. Our guests will receive a specially package lunch, a cuddly stuffed animal, and a personal throw blanket, followed by Santa and Mrs. Claus delivering a personal goodie bag with homemade cookies. Carolers will be singing, filling the air with joy for all our friends in the Mental Health Community.
There will be approximately 18-20 vehicles arriving in 30-minute intervals of four vehicles at a time. This will allow our masked volunteers to provide some personal attention, love, and Christmas cheer to our guest as remain safe inside their own transportation!
We hope the Marble Falls special needs students will join us this year, as we share in all the excitement and holiday festivities.
